IRS scam hitting the area as tax season kicks off

By  | 

GLASGOW, Ky. (WBKO) -- The Barren County Sheriff's Office has received several calls in reference to an IRS scam.

The person on the phone claims that they are from the IRS and that the person they have called owes money on back taxes.

The caller tries to get people to send a money order or say local law enforcement will serve a warrant on them if they don't pay.

The Barren County Sheriff's Office wants everyone to know that this is a scam. The IRS will not contact you by phone requesting a money order.

If you receive this call or a similar call in reference to money orders, please do not send them. If you have questions in reference to a possible scam please contact the Sheriff's Office at 270-651-2771.
